Being a gaming rig and some video editing use the main part that you have to focus on is the video card and you have to get the most card that you can for the money that you have so I think that you should bump it up some more with the video card.

Yeah that's a good idea, will the 500W power amp be able to power that?

For $800 you can get a way better GPU than a 460 - the 460 is now four generations old and it's a massive power hog compared to what's out now. You don't need the 3570K if you're not going to overclock. Invest that instead in getting a better GPU.

Try this:

PSU: Seasonic S12 II 620W - $89.99
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H77-DS3H - $99.99
CPU: 3.1GHz Intel Core i5-3450 - $199.99
RAM: 8GB G.Skill Ripjaw X 1600MHz 1.5V - $44.99
HD: 1TB Seagate Barracuda ST 7200 RPM - $99.99
Optical: LG DVD Burner - $17.99
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 - $249.99

Total: $790.91

A little more but the GPU is far more powerful than the 460 any day of the week.

For a gaming PC, the GPU is the most important, so it's better to get a slightly cheaper CPU/Motherboard and spend it on the GPU:

Yes the recomended power supply is a 450w so the 500w will do it.

That low voltage RAM won't mix well with Sandy Bridge / Ivy Bridge builds - you'll need 1.5V.
